land as art


The Kingsburg Coastal Conservancy received a commissioning grant from Arts Nova Scotia this spring. The project is called Land as Art: A meeting of conservation and creation.

The KCC has commissioned three south shore artists to create land art. The artists are: Don Pentz, a well-known and accomplished painter; Andrew Maize, a conceptual artist currently working with the new Lunenburg School of the Arts; and, Mariëtte Roodenburg, a photographer whose luminous photographs are exhibited internationally. The artists will work directly on the beautiful Kingsburg peninsula to create art out of natural materials found in the landscape. Although the art will be temporary, the project will be documented by Mariëtte Roodenburg and shared online.

Goodbye anderson

Ten years ago, I launched anderson, gallery of contemporary photography, in the old center of Lunenburg, a UNESCO Heritage Site on the east coast of Canada. Today is the end of my gallery. The building has been sold and will continue to be a gallery under a new name and ownership.

Launching and running a gallery of contemporary photography has been an interesting, inspiring and awarding journey. It started out as a fickle of my imagination and it developed into a beautiful gallery. A place dedicated to photography that received a warm welcome in Lunenburg, many returning visitors on a yearly basis, an astonishing number of loyal customers and collectors, and positive attention from the local, provincial, national and international press.

During its ten years of existence, the gallery represented thirty artists on an annual or bi-annual basis, organized an average of six exhibitions a year, including forty-three solo-shows, five book-launches tied in with a photography- or architectural exhibition and numerous one-day events. The gallery was featured in the series “Hot Shops” in the Saturday edition of the Globe and Mail (2007), it was recommended as a place to shop in the Travel Section of The New York Times (2009), it was recommended as a place to visit in EnRoute Magazine, Air Canada’s inflight travel magazine (2010), it was featured twice in The Nova Scotia 2011 and in The Nova Scotia 2012 Doers and Dreamers Travel Guide and it has received generous attention from The Chronicle Herald and LighthouseNow-Progress Enterprise throughout its existence.

It was a place where many interesting conversations took place, where constructive feed back and warm applause was given and received, where good friendships started and new ideas germinated. Thank you so very much friends and supporters of anderson, it was a super good trip!

Baer Art Center, Iceland

Very good, happy news! I have been offered an artist residency at the Baer Art Center in Iceland ( The Center is located in a very remote area, a 4-hour drive north of Reykjavik, on the eastern coast of Skagafjördur, a large fjord facing the Arctic Circle. Each year the Baer Art Center selects ten artists and architects for a one month residency at the Center and this summer I will be working there from June 8th until July 3rd. I am very excited and happy to be selected and look forward to the midnight sun and incredible light conditions. Thank you so very much Susan Hudson and Jed Dodds for your magic words and thank you Baer Art Center for this incredible opportunity!

Teichert Gallery, Halifax

A small selection of my work can now be rented, leased of bought at Teichert Gallery in Halifax.

KEY WEST  Photographs by Mariette Roodenburg
The Studios of Key West (TSKW) Main Hall
May 15 - June 13, 2014
Reception: May 15, 6 - 9 pm

Photographer Mariette Roodenburg, who was raised in the Netherlands and has made Nova Scotia her home, pulls a distinctive palette from the natural beauty of Key West.  Cool blues and silver streaks accentuate the seascape and bring a coolness and stillness to the tropics. When Roodenburg was a resident at TSKW in 2013, she spent her month in paradise working to perfectly capture the unique light of that place where water meets sky; the almost mythological quietude that can saturate the waters of Key West. Now Roodenburg returns to Key West to exhibit the final results of so many days spent studying tides, sunrises, sunsets. In addition to exhibiting her first Key West body of work, Roodenburg also plans to spend her time building upon what she started last year; switching gears from photographing during the windy days of January 2013 to capturing the glassy seas of early summer 2014.

TSKW is located at the Historic Key West Armory
